I’m reading a number of interesting books right now and talking to people who are in some way a huge part of Kenya’s history.
That is to say-everyone.
One of the things that keeps coming up is that it’s dangerous to frame this #WomanxKenyanHistory as a feminist or womanist endeavour. The argument is that these stories are already being told at home, within families.
I think there’s a huge need to document these stories. I know there is. There are only so many people at the forefront of history, so many years they will be alive.
I’ve been swamped at work and would have loved to write a new instalment today but I want to do justice to the tales this nation is full of.
Keep sending me stories, calling, emailing, asking questions to spur lines of enquiry. I appreciate every one of those things.
Here’s to documenting #WomenxKenyanHistory stories.
